Hindu Religious Society’s (HRS’s) 2nd Annual Diwali Dinner 2019.
On Saturday 19th October 2019, the Hindu Religious Society were pleased to hold their 2nd annual Diwali Dinner at Gandhi Hall. As in 2018, the event was a resounding success with all the tickets being sold out and over 100 guests including children attending and celebrating the Festival of Lights in style with us.
The evening started with a welcome and sweet Ladoo given to each guest by our President Mrs Indu Seth and Trust Chairman Mr Krishan Kumar JP. This was followed by a delicious welcoming soft drink and Gol Gappas!!
The guests entered the main hall and once seated our Shastri Krishan Joshi Ji conducted Ganeshji’s pooja followed by a welcome address by our President Mrs Indu Seth. Throughout the evening our General Secretary Ms Namratta Bedi hosted the event and led the Antakashri and Bingo games as well as the raffle. For the raffle various prizes had been donated such as restaurant gift vouchers, hair and beauty vouchers and other prizes.
There was a delicious 3 course sit down meal provided by Euro Caterer’s Events as well as tea and coffee at the end.
A firework display was hosted and our Vice President Dr Kimti Lal Gandhi recited some romantic poems and kept guests entertained with his wonderful humorous jokes. Thank you speeches were given by our Chairman Mr Krishan Kumar JP and President Mrs Indu Seth. To round the evening off, guests danced to bollywood and bhangra tunes. As a thank you, each guest including the children were given Diwali gifts as per the hindu rituals of Diwali.
We would like to sincerely thank Euro Caterer’s Events and their staff, as well as to the volunteers who helped decorate the hall and helped with entertainment and other activities. Our sincere thanks also to all our sponsors for the raffle prizes.
We look forward to hosting our Diwali Dinner in 2020.
